Urban renewal.

These words alone are enough to strike fear into the hearts of many history lovers. Did this movement erase our important connection to our past? Or allow us to move forward into the future? Did it destroy communities or revitalize them? Maybe both?

Kelly and Christina discuss urban renewal in the U.S. and in Northern New York to talk about the good, the bad and the in-between.

It's a lot to unpack, so settle in for our longest episode yet!
